Three Ways Your Cell Phone May Be Useful on Your New York Construction Site

The cell phone in your pocket isn't just for taking calls from your wife or checking the score of the afternoon Yankee's game. While your cell phone can be useful in these ways, it is also an important safety tool for you on your Brooklyn, Queens, or other New York City construction site.

How to Use Your Cell Phone to Stay Safe on a Construction Site

Your cell phone can be important in preventing construction accidents and helping you in the immediate aftermath of an accident. More specifically:

  • There are many apps available to help you stay safe. Organizations such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) have apps available to help keep construction workers safe. Other apps, such as first aid apps and weather apps may also be helpful.
  • You can use the camera to take pictures of unsafe conditions before an accident occurs or of what happened after an accident. This may help you convince your employer to change a dangerous condition or it could provide evidence in a construction accident case.
  • You can call for help. You don't have to wait for someone to find a landline. Instead, you can call 911 and your family immediately.

Have you ever used your cell phone to prevent an injury or treat an injury on a construction site? How did you do it? Please leave a comment and share your experiences with other construction workers who may be looking for new ideas about how to use technology to prevent construction accidents.

It doesn’t have to be that way.
